Living up to everyone’s expectations could be exhausting, especially with a name like Patience. All Patti wants in life is to ride fast horses, whether that means fox hunting in the woods of Kentucky, or disguising herself as a jockey and sneaking into a race. When she is caught, her father disowns her and Patti needs a new plan. She takes a job as a horse trainer at a ranch in Colorado through the mail, signing her name “Pat.”
Luke Davis was only twenty years old when he inherited Blackmore Ranch from his widowed and broken hearted father, and he spent the next decade focusing all of his energy on building it into a business that could support breeding a line of quality trail horses. He hires a new horse trainer on the recommendation of a longtime friend, expecting to gain nothing more than a skilled employee.
When they meet, both Patience and Luke immediately recognize a kindred spirit – but they will have to move past society’s definitions and run their own race in order to find happiness and build a future together.
